this conveniently located downtown cafe is housed in a nineteenth century pharmacy and offers good food for a fair price. the breakfast and lunch menu is varied and tasty. the homemade italian wedding soup was thick and flavorful, the greek salad was good, and the hand-cut fries were ample. there is a soda fountain with stools where an older man sitting, who said he'd been coming regularly for an ice cream soda since he was a kid. the staff was very friendly and service was efficient. the cafe is appointed with a mix of antiques and reproductions that are housed on the original pharmacy shelves and walls. we enjoyed a pleasant lunch and will return on our next visit to painesville.

Quaint little place, that used to be a drug store many years ago!
They still have the soda fountain and the stools to sit on!!
We want for lunch and sat at a wooden table. There are about 12 tables and after we sat down they all filled up!
I had a cheeseburger with mushrooms and it was really good, only $6.99.
My friend had her burger with fries which were delicious!
The prices are reasonable service fast and friendly!! Will definitely return
For their breakfast specials!!

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to Erie, PA. The food here was very good and the prices reasonable. The corned beef was excellent. Service was very good but then again we were the only ones there that early in the morning. Really enjoyed the décor and atmosphere.

We had seen "Sidewalk Cafe" on a local mid day traveling news program. The food looked excellent. We had some time yesterday to drop by- as they have limited hours- i think they close at 4pm. My wife and i ordered the Rubin and the Gyro (medium size)- and split them. They were both delicious and very filling. We ordered a side of fries which was more than enough for two. Our daughter ordered the French toast, sausage and hash-browns which she thoroughly enjoyed. It was so good- we may even go back for Breakfast next week. I would highly recommend Sidewalk Cafe.
